Immortality

Poem By Eric Paeplow

The world craves immortality
Eternal youth, energy and beauty
These are the deepest desires
Of our silent dreams

Yet these thoughts are simply specters
Silently creeping
Through our darkened nights
Through our sleeping dreams

And while the world around ages
And slowly dies
We few
We poets
Will forever be alive

For through our words
Our thoughts
Our muse
Our words will survive
Long past our time of youth

For immortality is not of the flesh
But of the mind
And thus
Our words give us our living breath

To be passed down through the ages
To be forever
Alive....

Raven's World

On a lone branch,
Swaying in the breeze
Roosts a darkened form

Sisters

On a obsidian throne, reigns the night, bane and suffering dwell each side
The unholy trio, tormenting timid souls on their journey throughout time
By a lonely path, they strode, unaffected by these cruel demons dreams
Shrouded forms, they appear to the souls in agony, their woes, legion

Autumn

A first glimpse, a first yearning begins the fire that will last a lifetime
A first kiss, a first night, as you slip to dream in each others arms
The first dawn, the waking of one sprit, instead of two
These are the days of wonder, these are the days of joy

Worthless Patch

As Selene is in her slumber
And sunlight filled the sky
He who made gods of men,
Sat down and began to cry

Let Sleeping Gods Lie

Once praised, then scorned, once worshiped, now forlorn
The Gods of the earth lay dormant, waiting to be reborn
Feared, praised, all powerful, then all at once, cast aside
Resting through the ages, forgotten, erased from our minds.

One Of A Kind

My soul remains as always, quiet and alone
Thoughts of death, as gray as a tombstone
Separated by choice, never one of the crowd
My thoughts and secrets, silent in my solitude
